Poppy's Bagels & More
We did a taste test with 4 people - 2 adults,.2 children. In this blind taste test, we compared a traditional lox bagel on an everything bagel from two Charlotte area bagel shops -- Manhattan Bagel (Arboretum) and Poppy's Bagels (Providence Rd). See pic below, left side is Poppy's Bagel sample and right side is the one from Manhattan. Results? Every single person gave a thumbs up to the Poppy's Bagel in the blind taste test. 4 to 0. The Poppy's Bagel won on overall texture and taste quality. The Poppy's Bagel tomato was firm and tasty, while the Manhattan Bagel tomato wasn't fresh and two of the taster's noted a a slimy texture to the Manhattan Bagel. Poppy's Bagel lox was vibrant salmon color and the Manhattan Bagel lox was a dull pink. The everything bagel itself from Poppy's Bagels was the clear winner with exquisite taste and texture -- the whole motivation to get up on a crisp fall morning and drive over to purchase some freshly baked bagels for the family. Nice to have a NYC quality bagel in Charlotte. Thanks Poppy's.
OK New Yorkers. This is the spot this happens to be without a doubt the closest New York bagel that I found so far in Charlotte. While there have been several very very good ones... Poppy's is the very best... from assortment to flavor to texture it's definitely number one in my book.. I have yet to try any of their breakfast sandwiches but if the bagel is in ticket of of how it will taste as an entirety it will be absolutely delicious. Parking is easy it's over in the corner don't miss it ..definitely give it a try
10/10 would recommend!!! Oh my goodness!! We got an omelet, bagel/ sandwich, chicken salad, and eggs benedict. Everything tasted amazing!! The seating was limited though.
Good bagels, Average Coffee , Breakfast is decent. Expect long lines on weekends.
